Slow Food & Yoga Festival welcomes visitors from everywhere, and classes are open for both beginners and advanced yogis. During the days of the festival, Acro intermediate classes will take place for those who know how to do advanced acro, and beginners classes will take place as well. But this doesn’t mean that everyone is not welcome to all classes - we do suggest everyone to try out every class that they are interested in, no matter their level. Shannon’s advice for some of the yogis out there, who just started their movement journey, is as follows:
“Be patient with yourself; progress and learning takes time. Say yes to new things and trust in yourself and others. Always warm up your wrists and never eat a big meal before going upside down!”
Shannon is teaching for the first time at Slow Food & Yoga Festival, and we are very excited to have her on board. Shannon will be in charge of Acro Yoga sessions together with Jack Hamilton, and she will teach handstand classes together with Thomas Mangin.
”I am so excited to be joining the festival as an instructor this time! I look forward to sharing my love of yoga, acro, handstands and movement! I am also really excited to meet new friends and attend workshops and classes myself!”
”The slow movement is something that has always appealed to me. I love the attention it brings to life. Slowing down is not about getting lazy or being complacent, it's about bringing your focused attention to one thing and being fully there and present. When we slow down, we make time for the things that really matter like health, creativity, happiness and connection to the people and places we love.”
